What day is this? My internal clock has been off for over a week. Last week I spent 5 days in bed with the flu - in between taking care of Baby Girl and DH who also had the flu. Then of course Monday was a holiday. We all probaby needed that extra day to rest and really get our strength back but it has totally screwed my sense of equilibrium. I've been a day off all week. I completely forgot it was my day to blog until about three seconds ago (hence the...less than deep post).
At the moment I'm also trying to plan the next school holiday - Spring break. Only this year Easter falls at the end of it and our school gave the girls that next Monday off too. So I'm trying to decide what to do with my children for 8 days.
2 of the days they'll probably be at the office with me (or with my mom if they don't decide to go somewhere). 1 day they'll be with my in-laws. Thursday, Friday & Saturday I want to try and do something fun with them. Something fun that doesn't cost a lot of money.
There are a few big cities that are only a couple hours away. They have museums, aquariums and zoos. I know the girls would enjoy going but.... right now I just can't get excited. 4 hours of driving followed by hours of trying to keep them from breaking priceless objects just isn't my idea of fun.
The problem is I know if I don't plan something now I'll end up waiting to the last minute and then decide it's easier just to stay home. That won't be fun for anyone. Anyone have some great ideas for filling the days with a 6 and 3 yr old?
